While it's not fair to compare your own inner world with other people's outer world, it's all any human can do, being seated, as we are, at the control center of our own psyche. Get around it today by staying focused on your own deal. A lunar conjunction to Jupiter in the sign of the archer lends luck for keeping your eyes on your own prize.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you have to spend time with people who just aren't a good influence on you, but more often you have a choice. When you think and plan ahead, it's easier to avoid having to spend time in ways you don't prefer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The truth moves you, even if the truth happens to be fiction. It's the emotional truth of a thing that rings out or doesn't. Just be aware that this can be manipulated by skilled actors, liars and storytellers.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You love people in different ways and for different reasons than you once did, which is the natural progression of love — to move with the changes, whether they be toward depth or friendliness or familiarity. It's nothing to fear.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just by being you and doing the next right thing, you will build up the trust others have in you. You'll do it enough times and in as many different ways as possible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your fresh, playful attitude makes it possible for you to live long without growing old. It also attracts attention from interesting people. The conversation is terrific!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're doing something that you would do whether or not you were paid. And yet, maybe you shouldn't offer this service for free. It's possible people will value it better if they pay for it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As you work, don't be afraid to make your tools your own. The same goes for the rest of the resources. Forget about what a thing was designed to do. What matters is what you're using it to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's one thing to understate things out of modesty or social grace and quite another to hide your light because you're afraid to show people what you're up to. Talk about your work. The support you get will do you good.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Showing your love isn't always romantic, like the gift of flowers, or glamorous, like being on a fantastic trip. Mostly, showing your love is as small as spoonfuls, as diligent as washing dishes, as moving as a carpool.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can't change other people, but you can make them want to change and then watch as they do the changing all by themselves. This is through fear or inspiration. Inspiration is better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Perfectionism can be a form of fear. To collect your "points" in whatever form they are available today, you need to get the product out the door. Know when to say, "Good enough."
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Fun is contagious, but it's also subjective. Read the room. And if you're not in the room, as in an email or text situation, this is impossible. Jokes are risky unless you already know your audience well.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 23). It starts with a 10-week stretch of cosmic boons, many and varied, including a lucky friend, fantastic tickets and an open door to a better position. You'll have the means to get what you want, but be careful, as an acquisition becomes, to some extent, a taskmaster, requiring attention and maintenance. Scorpio and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 40, 28, 1 and 19.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Gemini, and it seems like I'm way more than a twin inside my head. In fact, I could swear there's an entire crowd up there. They can be rowdy and unmanageable, and sometimes I can't seem to pipe down the chatter. What do you think?"
Sounds like your Gemini twins have started a colony! The Zen master calls it "monkey brain," and don't worry; it's normal. Some people just have louder and more varied internal voices murmuring opinions, ideas, directions, criticisms and more. It's OK to hear them all, as long as you don't believe them all. Pretend like you're running a town meeting in there. Some of the voices that pipe up are radicals, liars, immature or just wrong. Give each its moment, and usually the really odd ones will calm down after that. They just wanted to be heard. Pick out the reasonable ones, the ones who seem dedicated to your health and well-being, and who likely have your best interests at heart. Get to know their voices. The more you listen to them, the stronger they get.
Also, step up your physical exercise — it's the best way I've experienced calming down mental cacophony!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The world's biggest little movie star set many standards (like early start times on a set) that Hollywood continues.
